it's one of the attachments that includes what are beg bugs that look like bedbugs, but aren't them? so they are training materials and there they are. i think the only other thing to mention about this legislation is that it would require an additional inspector in terms of the certification required after violations. and that could be accommodated either by a salary ordinance request next fiscal year or temporarily or long-term reassigning existing staff and deprioritizing other activities. >> thank you so much, miss cohen. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> i do want to thank miss cohen and doctor bachi for working with our groups and recognize the department of building inspection who gave us feedback on this legislation as well. i have been notified by the clerk that we have an overflow room, room 250 and if you are here for another item and would like to give up your seat for folkses here at this item, the sheriff does not allow us to have people standing in the room. you will be able to watch the hearing and come back in for your item when that is up. i have just distributed a

questions for one party and not the other. but these seem to be crucial concerns. they beg for a response from both sides and if i had had the opportunity i feel i could have answered every one of the director's points and then some. i want to make this clear. i don't think there was any conscious bias at work. i do think there is an unconscientious deference to authority. the opinion of cab drivers i have seen this time and again down through the years our thoughts, our opinions our arguments are simply not given enough attention or perhaps too arcane to be properly understood. i would hope -- he see my time is up. thank you. >> thank you. >> is there any other public comment under item no. 1? seeing none, we'll move to item 2, which is commissioner comments and questions, commissioners? >> i have a comment and, in fact i just wanted to make sure that we appropriately welcomed commissioner honda to the board. it is a pleasure now to have all five of us sitting here and i have a few remarks to introduce commissioner honda. darryl honda is a native californian who lived in san francis
